Happy Sunday! It’s been a few weeks since my last post and there have been a lot of exciting events taking place for the students at SCO. This month has been very special to me because after a professor nomination process and student interviews, I was chosen as one of the ten Student Ambassadors to represent the Class of 2017!
Last week I was able to tag along on a couple of campus tours to get an idea of what it will be like – it was an awesome experience! Needless to say, I am thrilled about the opportunity and I can’t wait to really get started and to get even more involved at SCO.
Other than the information on the Student Ambassadors and the AOSA representatives, there aren’t a whole lot of updates to share from the last few weeks. Thanks so much to those of you who wished me luck at the New Orleans Rock ‘n Roll marathon a few weeks ago! My time wasn’t fantastic, but I did run the whole 13.1 miles without stopping so I was very happy. I am pretty jealous of Ben who ran the full 26.2 miles – I don’t think I could ever run a full marathon, but I have a lot of respect for those who can! I’m not sure what’s next for me in the running world, but I definitely plan to run in the St. Jude Marathon this December – weather permitting. :-)
